Real Housewives of New York (RHONY) star Ramona Singer is asking for “privacy” in the wake reports that her 22 year marriage to husband Mario has imploded over infidelity.
Authorities were reportedly called to the couple’s vacation home in the Hamptons after Ramona caught Mario canoodling with his girlfriend, 32-year-old personal trainer Kasey Dexter, last week. A spywitness tells People magazine:
“She saw him there with the girlfriend and made a big scene and called the police…She did not want a divorce. Ramona loves her life. She loves Mario…She has been putting on a brave face for her beloved daughter [Avery] who is away at college.”
This isn’t the first time Mario’s been accused of having a hard time keeping his zipper up. Ramona’s former RHONY co-star Jill Zarin once accused the businessman of propositioning her for sex. In fact, Jill says, Mario routinely flirted with all the Housewives:
“Ramona has been protecting him. She looked the other way when people told her he was cheating.”
For her part, Ramona just wishes this whole thing would go away. She said as much in a statement Wednesday:
“This is a personal and private matter for our family. For my daughter Avery’s sake, I would appreciate everyone respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
The Real Housewives of New York Season 6 premieres on Bravo March 11. So much for “privacy.”
